    maaan.. that was pretty cool.. i can't imagine it being bigger than that fish, it whooped ya too..
    ps.. ya got a pretty good detail of the catch too..lets see how long that'll last.. hate to see your "log book" get soggy.. :rolleyes: :p 3months max..
     

  2. Now that would have been a BLAST!! I have hooked into a few with my ultralight in Darby while smallie fishing but none that big. Nice job, man that looks AWSOME!!

    I had just caught a smaller one on that set-up about an hour earlier, AK was laughing and telling me if i hook anything with some size I'm in trouble. lol Next thing ya know this thing takes off, ran straight out to the middle of the river. Stripped ALL of my line off, had to run down to the water to try to get at least alittle line back on the spool. lol Completely kicked my butt and I think it will be awhile before I try it again. lol Thanks to AK's net-work it all turned out great.
     
  4. My dad once caught a steelhead on an ultralight with 4lb test and in some pretty fast current. It was about 26 inches, talk about a fight. I didnt think he would ever get that thing in.

    That's cool, good thing you had 4# test on or it would've spooled you with 6#.!
    Great story. So maybe euro rods and baitrunner aren't necessary ?!
    Just goes to show the experiance and the skill of the angler is what really counts. :D

    Hey AK and King Do you know what the line test record is for 4 lb? Or where I can find it? I have a feeling it might be to high to touch with an Ohio fish, lol unless I can get on some Blues or Shovels.
